My dear friend, my mentor.  Her vision for education, her compassion, and her friendship.  I embraced her spirit and mourn her passing.  She  could read your soul, share your pain, and  rejoice with your happiness.....she enriched my life.

I will never forget Virginia Greenwood as she was an excellent teacher.  I was a student at Ridgedale High School graduating in 1964 and Virginia instructed me in Gregg Shorthand and Bookkeeping.  Both of these skills served me well throughout my personal and professional careers.  She was the consummate professional and always commanded my attention.
